I hopped aboard an airplane yesterday after work to attend all day dental conference in Chicago on Friday. We boarded the plane on time but left late as they decided to add more fuel incase we needed to hover before we landed because Chicago was having bad weather (as usual). Anywho, a hour flight left us hover above Chicago in a line of other aircrafts that were unable to land due to......FOG??? It was so foggy you could see out of the windows. So we proceeded to circle around Chicago for another 30min when the pilot informs us that no one is landing in Chicago tonight and all flights for the evening are cancelled. So an hour later are now back to Columbus. Hmmmm. Interesting. I just flew in a plane for almost 3 hours only to end up going nowhere!
Sadly, something very similar has happens to us before on our way to Chicago for this dental conference. Only thing is we did make it to Chicago 4 hours later than we were suppose to and it was now after midnight before we got to the hotel. Not cool when you have to be up at 6am. So I guess this years trip was slightly better.
I veto any future trips to Chicago in Feb.
I don't usually photograph airplanes. This was for the kids.
